The SGA/AGÉ’s advocacy efforts are a foundational pillar of our organization. We plan various advocacy campaigns throughout the year. Our team can also help walk students through the academic appeals process. Our student executives, senators, board members, and general members hold seats on the university’s Board of Governors, the University Senate, and their subcommittees. The SGA/AGÉ enables students to lobby to Laurentian University, the City of Sudbury, the provincial government, and to the federal government to implement changes that will benefit the student experience both inside and outside of the classroom.

The Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA) represents the interests of approximately 150,000 professional and undergraduate, full-time and part-time university students at eight student associations across Ontario. OUSA’s approach to advocacy is based on creating substantive, student driven, and evidence-based policy recommendations.
